Well,

i heard in the beginning that stargate universe was actually something in the terms of battlestar galactica. I heard there was almost no ship action etc. So yeah, i thought pffff, drama between people, probably again that carter and dumb o' neill stuff.

My dad took it the other day in the store for 30 euros. We saw it for a few hours and i must say: "damn!".

I think, this is the best stargate show i've ever seen. If you compare this to stargate sg1 and even atlantis, this is just solid A show. It blows the other sg shows away. It looks much much more adult. It looks even much more, dunno movie look? If you watch atlantis or sg1, it is more childish and cheaper(music is stupid like something of an attraction park). Something you see at 5pm when the kids are still up. This is much more like 9 pm or so.

The music is finally great, it really adds a great atmosphere towards the show. If a battle or so is happening, you really get that adrenaline pumping feel. In sg or atlantis, the music didn't or barely. It was more just to put something in it and sometimes it had that stupid childish pom pom tune in it..

Also, luitenant james her tits are great, definitely a reason to watch and of course TJ :naughty:

Whats the point of a reboot/ new series in 20+ years? I'll be 37+. If Cooper and Bradley don't find a way to get another network to snag SGU, than the franchise is dead. And in reality, it is the fault of the fans who got butthurt that Atlantis finished and refused to watch or support SGU. Sy-Fy is also to blame for their ridiculous move to change the air times, but SGU had far fewer viewers than Atlantis. I hate saying it, but the franchise is dead, a reboot in 20+ years wont accomplish anything.

Monster_user;5544124Really, the best move for Stargate was Atlantis. The Atlantis series provided a precedent for adventures in other galaxies.[/quote]I would agree, although the show shouldn't have bothered with seasons nine and ten of SG-1. The whole Ori storyline was a joke in my opinion. The Goa'uld were the big bad enemy throughout the show, they pretty much finished them off in season eight, all except Ba'al. They should have left it there, and then continued to fight Ba'al and co with DVD films.

Monster_user;5544124The "ancients" had three areas, the Milky Way, the Pegasus galaxy, and the Ori's galaxy (forgot).[/quote]I don't actually think the Ori Galaxy came with a name. Short of the Milky Way, and Pegasus, the only other one we know of is Ida (the home Galaxy of the Asgard) ~ think that's the name of it anyway.

It was suppose to be a darker show, more about survival than exploration. It pulled that scene off quite well I thought, especially into late season one. The problem with season one though, I felt, it was too slow, especially with character development. It's possible they lost a few fans there. It wasn't until late in season one that it picked up, and then season two blew everything out of the water.

...then it was cancelled.

Honestly, if they were going to find a new network for the show, they'd have done so already. SGU is finished, no films are being produced at the moment, and by all accounts, most (if not all) of the cast are out doing their own thing now. The timing (if they wanted to get them all back) would need to be impeccable. It just isn't going to happen.

Stargate (as much as I hate to say it) will probably end up like Andromeda, Babylon 5, and half a dozen other sci-fi shows. Cancelled and Buried.

I would have to disagree here.

You say you blame the fans, I don't think that's true. Don't take this the wrong way, but you've probably just read somewhere that people stopped watching the franchise because of what they did with Atlantis. Actual fans wouldn't have done that.

When I read that Atlantis was cancelled, I was quite pissed off about it. I didn't think Universe would work, and I didn't plan on watching it, at the time at least. Then it came out, and I watched. I'm glad I did. Universe lost viewers simply because of syfy. Their stupid scheduling ruined the franchise. The viewers that they lost were more likely people that stuck SG-1 / Atlantis on because it was something to watch around a time they were sat in front of the television. Syfy screwed around with their broadcasts, people who weren't avid followers didn't think there need to catch up, and that's where they lost their viewers.

Alakazam;5545873Stargate (as much as I hate to say it) will probably end up like Andromeda, Babylon 5, and half a dozen other sci-fi shows. Cancelled and Buried.

The question of whether or not those sci-fi shows will remain cancelled and buried is a difficult one.

They are IPs. Those IPs may be bought and sold, and when the time is right, they will be reborn. Star Trek was an undervalued IP, but when Star Wars came along, Star Trek suddenly become a hot commodity.

Battlestar Galactica, Andromeda, Firefly, Sliders, Quantum Leap, Highlander, The Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, X-Files, The Six Million Dollar Man, Tales from the Crypt, Buffy, and Stargate are all strong IPs, and are likely to return sometime in the future. Max Headroom might even return.

I doubt that "Tru Calling", "Farscape", "Mutant X", "Jake 2.0", "Earth: Final Conflict", or "7 Days" will make a return.

I thought the first season was ok but when the second came along was totally awesome.

I also liked Enterprise which I kind of felt was too early to be cancelled and probably would have kept that other ST movie from being made.

Monster_user;5545964The question of whether or not those sci-fi shows will remain cancelled and buried is a difficult one.[/quote]I disagree. I think it's safe (and shameful) to say that they are buried.

Very few shows are remade. BSG was lucky in the way that it went, and thankfully it worked. They tried to do a spin-off with it (Capirca) which fell flat.

The only way to continue with Stargate (having thought about it) is with Universe. The crew went into stasis for what.... four years I think it was? This gives the producers four years to get themselves sorted, get their act in to gear, and go somewhere with the story.

I'm sure most of the cast and crew would come back, if there were one or two that didn't want too, it's easy to kill them off (stasis pod main-functioned). Short of that, Stargate is dead.

They really need to tie up Universe before they think about doing a 4th show, and as you've already stated, a reboot wouldn't really work too well.

[QUOTE=stargatep90;5545989]I also liked Enterprise which I kind of felt was too early to be cancelled and probably would have kept that other ST movie from being made.

That's a given I think. If Enterprise got the full seven seasons that all the other Trek shows (minus TOS) had, then I doubt we'd have had the 2009 Trek film.

Shame Enterprise wasn't a success. I've read that much was planned for season five.

Agreed. They certainly could continue with Atlantis, there's a lot of potential material there, though I know at lot of it was different because of the show's sudden end. Obviously though they would have a myriad of cast and production issues to sort out, which wouldn't make it worth the effort.

SGU though is another story all together. I'm sure the cast would come back for it; as far as I'm aware, the majority of them don't have any big commitments with any other shows. Also, because of the ending that season two was given, SGU could very easily take a year off. Particularly since SGU got much more of a following for the second half of season two, I think they'd have a pretty big fanbase this time round. The final ten episodes of SGU were some of the best Stargate I've ever watched. Everything was just starting to get off the ground at that point.

They spoilt that with the whole wormhole drive, and then leaving the base on Earth.

Atlantis needs a feature film, or two. We need some conclusion to follow with Todd and the other Wraith, as well as the Pegasus Asgard. Short of that, there really isn't anywhere else to go with it I don't think.

SGU, obviously, has a whole load of potential. They're travelling the actual Universe. That's endless possibilities right there.

Quoted for truth.

I read it would have been the start of the Earth-Romulan War and such if Enterprise continued.

stargatep90;5546949I read it would have been the start of the Earth-Romulan War and such if Enterprise continued.

I read that they were going to feature more Romulan activity, but I don't think the Earth - Romulan War came about until a bit later. If we think, from the last episode "These Are The Voyages" Archer signed the Federation Treaty; such a treaty wouldn't have allowed for an 'Earth - Romulan' war, it would have instead been a Federation - Romulan war.

I've heard they were going to have Shran join the Enterprise crew, they were going to have another episode that featured a Gorn, were going to introduce the Knziti (think that's spelt right) and were going to have another episode or two on the 'Mirror Universe'. Shame it got cancelled really, a lot of potential there.
